Courgette Glut: Courgette Lasgane

This post was written as Please excuse any wonky formatting. Visit the homepage for the latest, shiny new content.

The courgettes have stopped growing like mad now and I am down to a couple of big, watery specimens glaring at me in the kitchen.

This isn’t so much a recipe as an ingredient swap.

Big ol’ courgettes make a perfect substitute for lasagne sheets and make the dish slightly lighter for summer eating.

What you need

Courgette lasagne-what you need

Courgette lasagne-what you need

  • Large courgette, sliced (mine is thickish so it doesn’t collapse on the griddle)
  • You favourite bolognaise recipe
  • Cheese sauce (I used some left over Philly, milk and cheese)
  • Grated cheese

What you do

  •  Make bolagniase to your own recipe (unsurprisingly mine was heavy on courgette!)
  • Pre-heat oven to 200c
  • Heat a griddle pan, season your courgette slices, drizzle with oil and griddle on each side for approx 3-4 mins a side until soft
  • Layer up as you would a normal lasagne: meat, courgette, cheese sauce, meat courgette, cheese sauce… finishing with courgette, cheese sauce and a generous layer of grated cheese
  • Put in oven and bake until the cheese is bubbling on top. It won’t take as long as a normal lasagne as the courgette is cooked through already. My two individual sized ones took about 20 minutes
